Solving System of Equation by Substitution (simple substitution)
I'm stuck in this one problem, it is :
x + y = 3
3y + x = 5
help

x=2
y=1
But seriously how old are you?
>>
>>767724265
Are you 12?
>>
y = 3 - x

x = 5 - 3y
>>
>>767724555
x = .5
y = 2.5

Is this bait or are you genuinely daft?

If x+y=3 then x has to be equal to 3 - y, that is x= 3 - y

Then you can substitute x in the other equation for 3 - y:

3y + x = 5
3y + (3 - y) = 5

Then:
3y + 3 - y = 5
2y + 3 = 5
2y = 2
y = 1

If y=1, x + y = 3 becomes
x + 1 = 3
So x has to be 2

Some anon has solved it. Now give us another, nigger.

>>767724265
y = 3 - x
3y + x = 5
3(3-x)+x=5
9-3x+x=5
9-2x = 5
9-9 -2x = 5-9
-2x= -4
-2x/-2 =-4/-2
x = 2
I think

x = 3 - y
next equation

3y + 3 - y = 5
2y = 2
y = 1

other equation
x= 3 -1
x =2

you fucking retard at least learn how to google a website that does math for your dumbass

>>767727420
Why would I need to do that when 4 anon just did it for me free on here~
>>
>>767727885
Anon that was posted with the answer and there are free websites that will solve this for you. I’m saying your retarded ass needs to learn how to cheat because you damn sure won’t doing any middle school algebra
>>
>>767728207
Tell me more about how retarded I am please. You probably don't realize it but you are providing entertainment for the hole thread.

>can’t do math that 12 years old do
>can’t find a website that does calculations for you
>can’t even into English
I am insulting a middle school kid though so I don’t have much room to talk.

Kek sorry bro I was masquerading as op in an effort to hone my "smug moron" trolling persona. What would you rate it?
>>
>>767729516
I was annoyed until I saw the bad English and remembered that I was a retard for helping a middle schooler with algebra. I give you a 6/10, gr8 b8 m8 no h8

Do you think we should teach him what systems of equations like that actually represent? Either the algebraic or geometric intuitions?
